QR code generator

I need the application to generate a visible qr code or bar code for each new entry. I searched the commonty and found an article
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://community.appsheet.com/t/generating-barcodes/39&ved=2ahUKEwj66MrSj9LoAhU_4HMBHX3_CFMQFjAAegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw0kQ663rYw5jgQ2Ghiq863l. That shows what I’m trying to do. However when I implement it the result is down on the second image. Any ideas

I would guess you need to change the column type to Image.

Thanks again Steve, yes that was one of the issues, but i had to use the google api but it works.

This image is generated in a virtual column therefore not stored in the data source. I will eventually need to generate a pdf document using a template from the data source and I need the qr code to be included. Any ideas on how I’d go about achieving that?

I would expect the template could reference the virtual column.

I have used this service with a normal column and called it in a template with a space holder like <<[QR]>>…



Thanks for the help. Is the placehodler <<[QR]>> placed in my data source as a column name ? How is it refferenced in the formula?

The QR is the image column name where that formula is used as an App formula.

hi @Aleksi Do you know any way that from appsheet I can encode in “base64” a text string similar to this google api?

What do you want to do with that? Though I haven’t needed or searched that kind of service.
